His strongest and most distinct memories with audio were listening to live music through The Wilshire Ebell Theatre and their chamber concert series. To this day, he still loves listening to classical music especially when played with a tube amp and horn loaded speakers.
Although tube amps need replicable parts in the way of tubes, they are still infinitely re-buildable and have shown enduring appeal. Justin believes we would be hard pressed to make such generic statements about a 10 year old solid state amp. For the last 8 years, he’s been building tube amp kits and countless speaker projects. Most of his speakers have centered on Klipsch designs. After owning a pair of La Scala’s, he was smitten. In the last 3 years, he’s built more than 30+ amps and 14 pairs of speakers. With ampsandsound, he decided to improve production quality and reduce build time by moving away from drilling chassis to having plates cut, allowing production to become uniform. Justin participates on many forums and can be found under justinsweber on the Klipsch forum and AudioKarma.
In his spare time, he works full time as a social worker specializing in both psychiatric and medical social work.
